Fly rods at the ready at Goukamma

Things are looking up in the Garden Route and many reports have been received of fish being caught.

With dedication and perseverance I believe plenty more reports will follow of fish being caught on fly over the festive season.

I would like to wish everyone safe travels to your holiday destinations. May you have a Blessed Christmas and a great New Year.

Klein Brak

Quite a few grunter have been caught here and the garrick count is also up

Groot Brak

Grunter and garrick coming out. Although the garrick are still small they are more active than the grunter.


The mouth has been opened and this will give the estuary new life as the tidal movement will ensure that a lot more grunter will be seen tailing. There are plenty cob, grunter and garrick about.


The mouth has opened and that means the feeding banks will be exposed again. Good grunter movement with plenty mullet and juvenile garrick feeding.


Plenty of juvenile garrick active. Grunter are also more active with mullet still been caught on fly.

Plettenberg Bay

Deon Stevens from Tidal Loops had some success again with garrick and grunter which also seem to have become more active.
